Biden unconstitutional EO on background checks

Recommended Posts

Joe Biden is infringing on Americans' Second Amendment rights yet again as he plans to sign another executive order targeting firearms. According to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Biden's order will target gun dealers who break the law in an effort to move "the U.S. as close to universal background checks as possible." Biden's EO directs Garland to clarify who is "engaged in the business" of selling firearms. As an administration official explained: "Number one, to make it clear that those who are willfully violating the law need to come into compliance with the law and, number two, to make it clear to people who may not realize that, under that statutory definition they are indeed in the business of selling firearms, they must become federally licensed firearm dealers and they must run background checks before gun sales." The order is also reported to include a "safe storage" directive. One thing's for certain: This is not about keeping Americans safe but about expanding the government's control over law-abiding Americans and shrinking their freedom.

More than 1.5 million times a year (verified previously by the CDC and more recently in a study by Georgetown University) law-abiding citizens use firearms to defend themselves and others against criminal acts.
Democrats are doing all they can to put a stop to all of that. They are after "assault weapons" now, but will move on to handguns again if they ever succeed in getting all the AR's from responsible gun owners. Some of us remember when they were dead set on banning all handguns. Don't think they've decided handguns are OK now.

Also, banning things creates a huge, profitable and violent "black market".  Prohibition and the drug war served to prove that.  Firearm bans do the same thing.  If the anti-gun folks think gun violence is bad now, wait until the government implements it's "solution".
